The Liberal Party (PL) told the Superior Electoral Court (TSE) that President Jair Bolsonaro’s meeting with ambassadors on July 18 to address the Brazilian electoral system was an act of government and not pre-campaign.. Last week, Rede Sustentabilidade (Rede), Partido Comunista do Brasil (PCdoB), and Partido dos Trabalhadores (PT) filed lawsuits against Bolsonaro and the PL for early electoral propaganda. The Democratic Labor Party (PDT) also cited the alleged spread of fake news in the face of the president’s questions about the security of the electoral system. The TSE has refuted this and other statements by Bolsonaro about the security of the polls. In the demonstrations to the Electoral Justice – both in the joint action of the Network with the PCdoB and the PDT, the PL stated that no leader of the party participated in the event and that it was an act on the official agenda of the President of the Republic. According to the PL, the Chief Executive received diplomatic missions at the Planalto Palace and, for this reason, the TSE would not be competent to examine any alleged irregularity in the event.

A group of deputies opposing the government of Argentina presented, in the context of high political and economic uncertainty that plagues the country, a request for a political trial against President Alberto Fernández. A deputy from the right-wing Avança Liberdade party presented in Congress the request against the Argentine president “for poor performance and for committing possible crimes in the exercise of his functions”. The request comes in a context of political and economic crisis in Argentina, where differences within the ruling coalition Frente de Todos, between the ranks of the president and vice president, Cristina Kirchner, have accelerated the country’s financial deterioration. In the Chamber of Deputies, where no party has an absolute majority, the ruling coalition is the first minority and Juntos pela Change – by former president Mauricio Macri (2015-2019) – is the second. To be accepted, the request for political judgment requires two-thirds of the members present.
